Odysseus Comes Home

by Laura Lewis-Barr

About the Play

Comedy. 10-15 minutes (flexible). 2 females, 4 males, 6-20+ gender-flexible roles (11-25+ performers possible). Suitable for middle school and older.

Odysseus Comes Home is part of Lit on Fire, a performable collection of twelve short parodies of reading list classics.


Odysseus has been gone a while. A really long while. But as much as he wants to come home and regain his wife and his palace, showing Zeus and Poseidon that he's a new, more humble Odysseus may just prove more difficult than slaying a palace full of suitors. With an assist from the Goddess Athena, can Odysseus show that he's turned over a new leaf and still kill everyone who needs killing in this comic spin on The Odyssey?
